Movie Review – Free Guy

Read Time:2 Minute, 13 Second


What an enjoyable movie. Plenty of humor. The performances were spot on. I’ve been hugely impressed by Jodie Comer since I first saw her in Killing Eve. She was a great choice for her role. This isn’t a movie with drama and depth that really needs an actress with her skills, but she really made her character stand out.

Plot (Spoilers)
A bank teller discovers that he’s actually an NPC inside a brutal, open-world video game.

Ryan Reynolds doesn’t get enough credit for his acting. He doesn’t put himself in really demanding roles and most of his characters are a variation on Deadpool. But he too is exactly what this movie needed.

By the way, if you want to see Ryan Reynolds in a different than Deadpool role then watch The Voices (2014).

This could have been a good kid’s movie if they hadn’t dropped so many f-bombs. But if that doesn’t bother you too much then by all means. There’s a lot of good ethical considerations presented in this movie that might resonate with adolescents more than a movie made specifically for kids.

The action was really good and what made it really enjoyable is that we get to suspend our disbelief because they are in a game, so anything goes. It reminds me a little of The Mask (1994) starring Jim Carrey. Movies like that, where the fantastical can happen without being unrealistic. There’s a conceit that once you accept that then anything goes.

The movie is a tad predictable, but it’s hard to hold that against any movie because so few are unpredictable anymore. I think the worst aspect of the movie was that the villain was a little lacking. Not that Taika Waititi wasn’t good. I think he did what was asked by the director, but the character was just a little too over the top.

All in all a really fun evening. We laughed aloud many times.

Grade: B+

About The Peetimes: This movie was hard to find Peetimes for. There’s obviously a lot of action but also a lot of plot and character development, especially early in the movie. The first Peetime isn’t great, but we wanted to offer something early just in case. The 2nd and 3rd Peetimes are better.

This is a great app. I wish more people would support it

This app provides info about movies, reviews, ratings from people who have seen it before and after viewing. It has links to info about the movies. It let’s you know when there will be a lull in the action and how long it will last. If you want to know what happens during that time, you can check the brief synopsis (you have to click a link, so no accidental spoilers). It has a timer you can set (silent) to alert you to a break. It also tells you whether there is anything extra during or after the credits. It’s really a wonderful app. I’ve subscribed for a couple of years to support the developers, but I noticed some of the links to provide feedback didn’t seem to work today. They also made it free, with voluntary donations to see the pee-times. If you haven’t tried it, I encourage you to do so, and subscribe if you like it. I really hope the app is supported so it can continue to be maintained!

Developers note: RunPee doesn’t make much money but it supports itself nicely. Donations are appreciated, but not required. We’ll add as many movies to the database as we can until there are no more movie theaters.

  1. So, Guy is a Deadpool/Pikachu clone? 😉

  2. I didn’t see Pikachu, but Guy isn’t too far removed from Deadpool, just much kinder and not as nasty.

  3. Pikachu was like Deadpool, except cuter and almost totally improvised. I read he was just riffing and being himself the whole time. The contrast with the adorable critter is infinitely amusing.

    I’ll watch Ryan in just about anything. (“Just about” being key…I have no desire to see Wolverine: Origins again.)

  4. Saw this today and loved it! The cameo in the final boss fight made me laugh out loud which I don’t often do in the cinema. Yes, British, I know.

    What has surprised me is that there is no mention of Free Guy being included in the GHD round up…

  5. @revrobuk, you British make me laugh. 🙂

    Really good point. This needs to be included in the GHD list.
